I bought a pair of leggings. So I didn't last a whole year without buying any clothes.
HOWEVER, it was a lot less than I'd have bought otherwise (usually averaged 3-5 pieces of clothing per trip before) and it allowed me to make an entire winter outfit out of a summer dress. So I'm forgiving myself, and continuing to not buy clothes till next August.
Also, I thought about and wanted brown leggings for a good three months before I finally caved. I think this mindfulness is what I SHOULD be doing with every purchase. Hopefully I will evolve to think long and hard about each and every purchase I make.
And they were only $12.51. Great deal. :)
